A northeast Missouri man on probation a second time for setting a Kirksville duplex on fire is once again behind bars.

State troopers arrested Brandon True, 41, of Kirksville, just before 4 p.m. Wednesday at a home in Kirksville.

Adair County Prosecutor Matt Wilson told KTVO True recently violated his probation by consuming alcohol.

True was given five years probation in March 2017 after pleading guilty to Second-Degree Arson in connection with a 2014 arson fire.

True intentionally set it on fire. No one was hurt in that blaze.

In May 2017, True violated probation the first time by disturbing the peace at a Columbia, Missouri bar.

True was sent to the Missouri Department of Corrections for 120 days and then released.

Now True is back in the Chariton County Jail with bond set at $25,000 cash only after the prosecutor recently filed a motion to revoke his probation.

According to online court records, True's probation violation hearing is set for 9 a.m. January 4, 2018, in Chariton County Circuit Court.
